Ever since it has been announced that Jason Cook will be returning to the long running soap opera drama series “Days Of Our Lives” along with his daughter Claire Brady who is now a teenager, fans have been speculating that Martha Madison will be returning with them too. Now the news has been confirmed by the former”‘Days of Our Lives” star that she will be indeed returning to the show as Isabella “Belle” Black after years of absense. The 37 year old declared on Thursday, June 24, 2015 on her TRadioV show “Soap Box” about signing a contract with the NBC show and will debut on November 25, 2015. She was last seen on the show as Belle on March 24, 2008 before leaving with her husband and daughter.
After leaving the American soap opera, the 37 year old who is happily married in real life to AJ Gilbert since 2007, had booked a role in 2012’s romantic movie “Undercover Bridesmaid” as a character named Sally. After that in between 2010-2014, she appeared in a television series called “The Bay” as Marly Nelson-Foster , “A Place Called Hollywood” (2015) as Sissy Sattire. She went on to book a lead role of Miranda Winterthorne in an online drama called “Winterthorne” which is currently in the pre-production stage and is set to air on August 27, 2015.
Now that it has been confirmed that Madison will be returning the show, will it soon be confirmed that Jay Kenneth Johnson will be returning as Philip Kiriakis too? Wouldn’t it be exciting to see him back on the screen after years of being away? If he does return on the 50th anniversary and the writers of the show are being secretive about it. Will Philip be mad at his nephew Brady Black for being in a relationship with his ex wife Melanie Jonas? I can imagine him being cold to Brady for that. I can also imagine Philip and Belle bonding, and Philip being there for Shawn and Belle’s daughter claire. Will Philip be returning with his and Mimi’s son Tyler Kiriakis? We will have to wait and watch.
